Actress and eco-warrior Daryl Hannah was arrested today in front of the White House during a sit-in to protest the proposed Keystone XL pipeline expansion. U.S. Park Police handcuffed Hannah after she refused to move off of the sidewalk.

A police spokesperson said that Hannah paid a $100 fine and was released from custody.

If approved by the State Department, the Keystone pipeline will funnel gas over 1,600 miles — from Canada to the Gulf of Mexico.

Hannah is certainly no stranger to facing the fuzz for environmental causes. In 2009, she was arrested for an act of civil disobedience at a mountaintop removal protest. You can tell that she’s done this before — check out this video of her today preparing to be taken away by police:

Whether the arrest was random or deliberate, I give the coolest mermaid on the planet props for walking the walk on this important issue. How about you?
